About this artwork
A kite-shaped chalk drawing, which as David explains, is like some form of algebraic diagram, an equation with a float of letterforms that monitor change and movement. It all balanced and clicked together in the making in a very fresh and surprising way. I was thrilled. And that's why I settled on this title.Part of David's signature series of minimalist abstractions inspired by his long standing love of language and words. In each collage painting he methodically pieces together the composition, building a story through the suggestion of specific objects - such as bowls, tents and tools - and their relationship with one another. What doesn't come across in a piece is the time it takes, the journey made, the lengthy process of selection and the changes undergone, explains David. Often I take away, remove sometimes more shapes, than are added.
